The Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts' conservation law forums are educational programs for attorneys and staff for land trusts, public agencies and law firms to learn, discuss and help shape land conservation law in Oregon.

This first forum of 2017 will take place on Wednesday April 19th from 10am-2:30pm at the Wells Fargo Center in Portland.
The forum will focus on forestland conservation and working forest conservation easements, as well as a 2017 Oregon Legislative update. See the draft agenda here and below.
The forum is $100 with CLE credits, and $50 without.
Lunch will be provided.
